The Pumas vs Celaya match will feature Celaya taking on Pumas at the Estadio Miguel Aleman (Celaya), on Wednesday, February 20th at 7:00pm PST.

Pumas, score or… score

Pumas comes from wining a crucial match against Morelia in the Liga MX, which somewhat alleviates the pressure of not wining at home. However, the goal was not scored by any of the main strikers, but by a defender. This adds to the issue Pumas is facing, which is the lack of scoring from its troupe of forwards, what can Torres Servin do?

Pumas will pay the visit to Celaya, a team who got a draw at Estadio Olimpico Universitario last week. This, again, is a good chance for the strikers and Torres Servin to check up close where the problem is with the offensive non-functionality. In this match, Pumas must get the 3 points if they are seeking to obtain a greater chance to pass to the second round of the Copa MX. We should not forget that the next two matches will be played against Puebla, and those will be less easy, in theory, than the ones played against Merida and Celaya.

Celaya, a win for happiness

Celaya comes to this match after a loss against Leones Negros in the Ascenso MX. Celaya, which had a draw last week at Pumas, has little chances to make it to the next round unless they win their next three matches. They would need to beat Pumas, and sweep Merida in the last two Copa MX matches they will have left to play.

Celaya will use being at home in their advantage. And they will look at all costs to not let the offense of Pumas get past ¾ of the field. Blocking Bravo and Cortes will be their priority, which applies if they play.

Pumas vs Celaya Prediction

The Pumas vs Celaya will be a tough match for Pumas, Celaya will not let them play comfortably; for Celaya this match means life or death in the Copa MX. Pumas will try and play relaxed, and will seek the ball. This is a good chance for Pumas to practice passes which have not been accurate in the Liga MX so far. Celaya will take this game more seriously and pursue the win. The Pumas vs Celaya match will end in a 1-1 draw.
